Sound Of Music Songs We Just Can’t Get Out Of Our Heads
We’ve had them memorized for years
The true test of a classic movie is if it can make the jump from one generation to the next. There are some movies that have lost traction over the years, but then there are those that still click despite its years of remakes, remasters and recoloring. Sound of Music belongs to the latter group and we’re willing to bet it’s because of those stay-in-your-head songs.
That upbeat melody and those hilarious lyrics will never get old.
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A will of a whisp?
Sixteen Going On Seventeen
The innocence, the romance and the utter willingness to let love take you under its wing. Not to mention, that dance routine and kiss at the end will always be one of our favorite scenes.
I am sixteen going on seventeen
Innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those?
My Favorite Things
Because this song is epic for stormy nights and I’m-not-feeling-the-world-today hits.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
How else were we supposed to memorize the notes?
Do, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long, long way to run
So Long, Farewell
Is there a more epic way to say goodbye and goodnight than in song and dance?
There’s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery, an absurd little bird
Is popping up to say, “Cuckoo! Cuckoo!”
